The Chicken Gunman: Jamaica Makes Art From An Epidemic

Words by Erin MacLeod

Wayne-J-Chikungunya-

While the rest of the world fixates on ebola, the most popular topic of discussion in Jamaica’s route taxis and buses is chikv, or chikungunya, a mosquito-borne sickness that strikes down even the healthiest folks, causing high fever and severe joint pain. Though the government insisted until very recently that it wasn’t an epidemic, it would seem that amongst Jamaica’s population, you’ve either already been shot by the chicken gunman or you’re just waiting for the inevitable. The virus is a massive productivity suck for the country, as offices struggle to soldier on with so many people ill for days, and sometimes, weeks. But, being Jamaica—a place where even hurricanes have inspired hits—it’s been a boon for artists who have been quick to provide some musical relief… if the recommended Panadol, pawpaw leaf juice, bissy tea and plenty of water aren’t working.
